Hi again, I cross referenced Michael McEvoy and Margaret marriage in 1915 and came up with 2 possible Margaret's, neither of whom are Kelly. One is Margaret Meany & the other is Margaret Hoare.
I then looked at the Irish census records and found the following;

1901 census:
Henry St., Graigue Urban, Carlow
Terence Hoare   age: 28    head of house   Roman Catholic(RC)  born: Queen's co (Laois)  occ: boatman
Bridget Hoare   age: 27  wife  RC  born: Queen's co
Maggie Hoare   age: 9  daughter  RC  born: Queen's co
Edward Hoare   age: 4  son  RC  born: Queen's co.
John Hoare   age: 3  son  RC  born: Queen's co
Bridget Hoare   age: --  daughter  RC  born: Carlow co.

1911 census
Ringsend Docks, South Dock, Dublin

Terence Hoare  age: 37  RC  born: Carlow co.  married  occ: mate on vessel

Bridget Hore  age: 10  daughter  born: Queen's co.
Mary Hore  age: 8  daughter  born: Queen's co.
Elizabeth Hore  age: 6  daughter  born: Queen's co.
Christina Hore  age: 4  daughter  born: Queen's co.
Anne Hore  age: 2  daughter  born: Queen's co.
James Byrne  age: 28  brother  RC  born: Queen's co.

1911 census
Dublin St, Carlow Urban
Margaret Hore  age: 17  RC  born: Queen's co.  occ: housemaid in Kinsella household
Burren St., Carlow Urban
Margaret Hore  age: 20 RC  born: Queen's co.  occ: domestic servant in Gaffney household

*note: in 1911 at old address Hoare family living at before Terence went to work in Dublin, resides a George Hoare age:35,his wife Jane & 2 kids. George may be brother to Terence

for Margaret Meany found 2 possibles in 1911(ages for both appear a bit young):

1911 census
Seskin, Ridge, Carlow

Martin Byrne  age: 50  RC  born: Queen's co.  occ: farmer  married
Mary Byrne  age: 46  wife  RC  born: Kilkenny co.  married 2 years
Anne Meany  age: 13  step-daughter  RC  born: Carlow co.
Margaret Meany  age: 12  step-daughter  RC  born: Carlow co
Mary Meany  age: 11  step-daughter  RC  born: Carlow co.
Martin Meany  age: 7  step-son  RC  born: Carlow co.


1911 census
Old Chapel Lane, Tullow Urban, Carlow

William Meany  age:56  RC  born: Limerick co.  occ: painter  married

Maurice Meany  age:24  RC  son  born: Cork co.  occ: painter
Patrick Meany  age:18  RC  son  born: Cork co.  occ: painter

Ellen Meany  age:11  RC  daughter  born: Carlow co.
Francis Meany  age:13  RC  son  born: Carlow co.

In Civil Registration Lists I could find no birth for Margaret Hoare but found 3 for Margaret Meany;
Jan-March 1893 Carlow, April-June 1890 Kilkenny, & Oct-Dec 1893 Kilkenny.

Hope this helps, Kim
